To my friends in Herne and Broomfield
You will be pleased to hear that, together with my team of helpers, I have had a lovely rest and am now back at the North Pole writing my thank you letters.
We had a very busy Christmas this year and we had a wonderfultime meeting so many people in your
villages. Thank you for all the cakes and drinks you gave me as I travelled round on my sleigh. I would just like to say that all the children I met were lovely and so very well mannered, it was a real pleasure to meet you and your families. The hand made cards from the children were very special and are now in pride of place on my mantelpiece.
I hope you had a splendid time at Christmas and together with my elves and reindeer, I wish you and your families a very Happy New Year
